Chico?s Angles 2: Love Boat Chicas:
When one of Charo’s back-up dancers is shot mid-performance, Charo realizes she was the intended target. She hires Chico’s Angels to find the wannabe-assassin and save her ocean-going career.
Kay goes undercover as Charo, (Fortunately, she is the spitting image of the Spanish classical guitarist) with Chita in tow, as her choreographer/manager (Chita has seen A Chorus Line 32 times…at the East LA Quienceanera Palace/cafetorium). Frieda joins the crew as the new Cruise director (cruising is one of her off-duty specialties.) Finally, Bossman provides back up, undercover as Isaac, your bartender (Bar…enough said.)
The Angels discover almost everyone onboard has a motive for killing Charo. They also discover themselves being entranced by the Love Boat?s charm as Kay risks blowing her cover to be with her dance partner, Dickardo, while Frieda finds herself inexplicably drawn to retiree passenger, Ruth Bliss, and Chita tries to resist the hypnotic effect of the combination of Bossman, a full moon and a bottle of tequila.
ABOUT THE ANGELS:
Kay Sedia:?Kay Sedia was born in Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico, Kay is the youngest of 18 children and the prettiest of them all. So pretty in fact: she won the title and crown of Miss Tijuana Natural Springs Water, ?The water that springs right thru you?. One of her duties as Miss Tijuana Springs was a self-guided, one-woman boat tour of the Pacific Ocean via San Diego. Thought to be dead and lost at sea, Kay emerged back into the border spotlight. It was the charity she founded, ?Save the Donkeys,? which let her hometown know that she was O-Kay! She soon became romantically involved with her hunky arresting immigration officer. To prove her love to him, she joined the police academy? and failed. She then turned to high fashion modeling where she could make lots of money using her stylish good looks and charming personality. She had huge success with modeling girdles in the Penny Saver Magazine.? After being spotted there she was asked to join the crime-fighting trio Chico?s Angels.? Kay moonlights and makes a modest living selling Tupperware (www.kaysedia.com) to helpless homemakers,? maybe you saw her trying to help those ?The Real Housewives of Orange County?? (season 5 episode 9) .? Kay lives her life as a Detective/Model/Tupperware Sales Lady, but is the most voluptuous and the pretty Angel of all times.? (expect maybe Jaclyn Smith)
Chita Parol: She was born in East Los Angeles, California as a first generation Mexican/American.? As the smart one, and angry about it, Chita keeps focused on the job, except for those small moments, far and in between, where she gets to shine. She never seems to get the guy, mainly due to her anger management issues. She?s working on that, and getting better. Now she only hates everyone just a little bit. Chita fancies herself the pretty one.
Frieda Laye:? Frieda was born in what is known as La Frontera de Chihuahua, Ciudad Juarez Mexico, or as it’s come to be known across the border, J-Town. Frieda was left under the door mat of a convent, Las Hermanas de la Madre Guadalupe de los Chavos. She realized that her destiny was to be one of Chico’s Angels and that she was to use her special abilities to fight crime as a private investigator. …and to supplement her income as a private dancer as well. Frieda is proud to be one of Chico’s Angels, and while she may not have the brightest halo, it is the blondest.
